I have this formula:
and the results shows me for example: +11.6 but what I really want t
show is +12.
I've been trying to put the "Round" function at a few places in th
formula but it doesn't work.
The closest I got was with this formula:
where it showed me 12, without the "+" sign before....
Can anyone help me ?

In Excel 2003, one could select a cell, highlight a part of the contained
text string and then right-clidk and format text. I could get underlining,
bold, font, color, etc.
For some reason, with Excel 2007, I can do the same, but when I hit the
enter button, the formatting disappears. It reappears if I select the cell
and press F2.
Is there some setting that I have missed?

Is it possible to format a portion of a text string within a cell (as opposed
to the entire cell). For example, I would like to format the word 'gift' in
red font anywhere it a appears in range C2:C417 but only that word, not the

But you could change the actual format for that word (or group of characters)...

I'm trying to use for my first time, a single dimension array to use within
an external sql query.
I build the array from column A. This can be a variable amount, from 2 to 800.
However, I can only use 150 rows at a time in the query.
Below is what I have so far, in building the array. It's just the pulling
out of 150 records at a time, or the remainder to put into the sql query.

I'm using conditional formatting on some cells to highlight particular
values. The conditional formatting on 2003 only allows 3 levels of
conditional formatting. Anyone know if there is a way to increase the
number of levels? Thanks for any advice.
Cut off: yourhead to respond
conditional format only accepts 3 conditions though you have a fourth
if you include the default format.
If you only want to apply different FONT colors based on NUMBERS, you
can define up to 6 different styles. See:

My book reading says that when you incorporate a subdocument into a
master document that the style formatting gets overridden when you
view the subdocument in the master document.
I would like to know if it is possible to have each subdocument
preserve its own style formatting outside the header/footer?
Why would you do this and create inconsistent formatting?
Glad you asked. The reason is I need to incorporate documents as
appendices that need to be formatted as they originally were done. The
inconsistency is not an issue --but rather a benefit as it shows they

I am trying to format dates in a spreadsheet. These dates are in a mixed
format. They change to a five digit format (for e.g. 06/03/2005 is represnted
by a five digit no. - 38417). I am unable to sort the date because it is not
in the correct format even if I change it to date. Is there any way I can
convert these numbers back to the date format therefore allowing me to sort
them. Mnay thanks in advance

Dates are just numbers with a special representation in the spreadsheet.
Sorting should work regardless of how they are formatted.

4 ...How To Get Excel To Stop Auto-Formatting my Column Data Types
I'm using Excel 2003. Anyone know how to get it to stop automatically
choosing a data type for my columns? Some of its automatic features
are nice but its auto data type sometimes gets in the way. Example, I
run a program which exports data to Excel. The data contains fractions
such as 5/6 and 6/6. When I open the newly-created Excel file, Excel
converts those fractions to dates such as May 6 and June 6. If I could
get to the worksheet ahead of time, I would format the column as text.
But it's too late by the time I look at the worksheet and converting to

I took my Publisher 98 file with an Excel table, and loaded it into MS

lines of the table print, and I cannot find anywhere to get rid of them. It
did not print them in Publisher 98. None of the autoformat options or border
options on the task bar help. Any suggestions?
Best to change the Excel beforehand to remove both borders and gridlines,
i would think. The round tripping aspects of Office leave a bit to be desired
and one is usually much more comfortable in one Office application.

We're trying to design our invoices to fit our preprinted forms (we would do
it the other way around, but we have 10 cases of invoice paper left!) and I'm
having difficulty with Report Writer. I'm wondering if someone can help:
1) Is it possible to change the font of a field OTHER then changing the DPI
of the whole report?
2) Is it possible to wrap a field, such as the Long Description field, so
that it will fit in a fixed width column?
I am perplexed that there is not more functionality in the report design in
a Microsoft product such as this.
